Bicycle & Pedestrian Planning Updates in the Isothermal Region

Currently, Isothermal RPO is participating in several bicycle and/or pedestrian planning efforts in McDowell, Polk, and Rutherford Counties!

Isothermal Bike Steering Committee meeting

Isothermal Bicycle Plan had a steering committee meeting in October and currently, the Steering Committee is reviewing a draft of the Plan! In the New Year, there will be public involvement events in each of the four counties involved in this effort: Cleveland, McDowell, Polk, and Rutherford. Be on the look-out for those flyers soon!

Spindale Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan had a steering committee meeting in October as well. On November 18th, there was a Community Walkabout and Bike Ride. Finally, on November 28th, there was a Community Workshop with ROC at Barley’s. Next, the consultant will be drafting the Plan!

Be on the look-out for updates on these efforts and a few more coming in the New Year, such as:

  • Columbus-Tryon Bicycle/Pedestrian Plan (Polk)
  • Thermal Belt Rail Trail update (Rutherford)
  • Charlotte Road/Main Street Charrette (Rutherford)
